Change the Rank so it also reflect Uploaded Content & Days as Member
I've been a Loyal Member for almost 4 years and I've contributed my share of Videos and yet my rank is still reflected as 'Newbie'. It can take under an hour to post 51 comments on videos and increase your rank. Please make it also possible to obtain ranks through contributing and/or active days, as this makes more sense.
Contributions should be weighted. I wouldn't know the exact formula, but essentially all contributions would have a weight/level number assigned to it.
Lets say that a comment is worth one point or a percentage of a point
Listing an item as a favorite is worth one point or percentage as well (weighted same as a comment)
Posing a blog could be worth 2-3 points
Posting a story could be worth 5 points.
Uploading a gallery could maybe be one point per pic, or maybe 5 points per gallery or 5 points per page.
Uploading a video could be worth 10 points.
Every day an account exists could either be one point or a percentage of a point (like .50 or .25 or .1. I think anything less than ten percent is too little). Maybe one point for every 7 days
Subscribers should count somewhere in there, but i don't know how much. Maybe 2-3 points per sub?
I'd want profile views to count to, but I'm pretty sure i've accidentally boosted my own views by going to my own page so much, so maybe it should be points for ever hundred or thousands of views.
MAYBE friend count can be weighed as well, but i'm almost convinced people spam friend requests more than they do comments. I've seen countless people with multiple thousands of "friends" they barely if ever talk to.
If percentages can't be made, then essentially the "least valuable" things are counted as one while bigger contributions like uploads/posts/streaming should be the highest value.
my rank shoulds be goddess
THAT is really dumb....then you can just upload junk, and achieve the very same thing......make your rank based on days on here. that would be better...........no one can cheat then......
Absolutely agree. My profile here varrun_2007 has 49 cum tribute videos based on user requests. But still my Rank is Porn Lover basis 105 comments. I am more of a contributor than a commentor. I have people who have no content & just spam commented to get higher ranks.
I agree with over 500 video uploads and nearly 500 gallery uploads myself to your site, reward the people making this site great and what it has become, i dont get much time leaving comments to gain rank, i get more satisfaction uploading for everyone else, this also benefits xhamster as people are more inclined to stay on a site if popularity in choice is there.
I upload all my own amature video material but are ranked the same as some idiot who just " thanks for the add " messages people .
Xhamster needs to realise who their most valuable members are
And as a content provider, I firmly agree xHamster has always sucked at the way they rank their members.

Rank should be made on comments & posted content, not on days as a member.

I'd say the two main types of users who contribute to this site are
1) the ones who create content, without whom we'd have nothing to see, and
2) the ones that interact on the content, maybe with suggestions and chat and helping the creators to come up with more content.
I'd say it's hard to create a ranking system that satisfies both as there will always be creators that feel they should be above the ones who comment, and vice versa. Maybe it will require two different ranking indicators?
Also, should frequency of log in come in to play in showing activity on ranking?
The rank system is off because people whom don't upload shit to xhamaster are porn experts; while others who shoot videos, edit, upload and share are newbies!
Maybe a dual ranking system would be great for those who post and those who don't post.
It's a bit silly to rank people only off them amounts of comments they make!
I say change your rank to fat cocksuck
or basement boy you pathetic wanker
Sounds a mighty fine plan, to me

Can you suggest a new formula to count rank please?
Totally agree why should somebody with no content rank the same as one who provide some.
of course it should be possible to extend rank conditions as follows:
rank = #comments + #vids + #pics + #hasintro + ....
or some formula like that. You can also weigh heavier what you find more important. Right now only #comments counts. The function can index into a table containing lots more of ranks that just the current 7 or 8 or whatever.
Could make social entertainment much more interesting. People with no pics no vids and no personal text, i would give a low rank. This site is about connecting people, so if i was xhamster i would "PLAN" this!
